My painting, inspired by El Greco's "View over Toledo," offers a unique cubist interpretation of the historic city. Dominated by shades of blue, green, and turquoise, it captures the essence of Toledo through a modern, fragmented lens.

In creating this piece, I aimed to deconstruct the city's iconic landscape, breaking it down into geometric shapes and reassembling it in a way that challenges traditional perspectives. The use of blues and greens evokes a sense of calm and tranquility, while the turquoise adds a touch of vibrancy and movement.

Each element of the cityscape—its buildings, bridges, and natural surroundings—is rendered in overlapping planes and facets, creating a dynamic and multifaceted view. This cubist approach allows for a simultaneous depiction of multiple angles, inviting viewers to explore the depth and complexity of Toledo in a new and abstract form.

The interplay of colors and shapes not only pays homage to El Greco's dramatic use of light and atmosphere but also reimagines the city through a contemporary, cubist lens. Through this painting, I strive to capture the timeless beauty of Toledo while offering a fresh and innovative perspective.
